Abstract

Our project is an exploration into cleaner fuel usage. Federal Express midsize trucks run on standard gasoline. With the race toward a green outlook, Federal Express seeks a way to embrace a cleaner fuel. Using surveys, we compare three alternative fuels, hydrogen, hybrid electricity and vegetable oil. These fuels are judged based on cost, environmental impact and performance from the consumer and governmental point of view. Through this, one is chosen as FedEx's next move to green.
